VisiTech has its fingers all over the technology and digital pulse and this Wednesday we think the web site to check out is www.Disrupt100.com.
Disrupt 100 is an index of the businesses worldwide with the most potential to influence, change or great new markets. The list was judged by corporates IBM, Silicon Valley Bank, KPMG, tech accelerators Microsoft Ventures, Mass Challenge and WAYRA.
Each Disrupt 100 venture was sourced from over 1M global start-ups and corporate ventures, has been scored against a specific criteria measuring the potential it has to affect an existing market or geography, introduce new customers into an existing market and/or creating a new market with significant customer demand.
Here are a few facts about the list – remember it will not go live until 25 May 2016.
- Most disruptors were founded outside of North America, with most from Europe and almost a tenth from Israel, a country with quarter the population of California.
- Healthcare is the leading sector for disruption with innovative prevention, prediction, detection and treatment methods.
- Smart devices are enabling most disruption.
